The public is invited to “Get Your Check-Up from the Neck Up” at free Wellness Month events at locations throughout the county and online during October.
One in five people struggle with anxiety, depression or other mental health disorders every year, and more than half don’t get help, according to the Southwest Regional Mental Health Board. During October, the public may stop by a Mental Wellness table to talk about coping with stress and improving mental wellness. Mental health screenings are free and anonymous and a clinician will discuss the results. There also will be resources available to take home.
